'Jolly' rooms?

'Jolly' rooms?

While researching a holiday several reviews for what looks like a really good hotel have said to make sure we book a room in the main hotel and not one of the 'jolly rooms'. I have absolutely no idea what a jolly room is and dont want to make a really expensive mistake! Could someone explain?

I have no idea. Why don't you contact the hotel and ask?

What hotel are you talking about? Paste a link to the reviews, please.

Would you believe that while trying to find the original review I actually managed to find an explaination of what a jolly room is? It appears to be something where you pay a greatly reduced rate but dont get to specify the type of room you get - one in the main body of the hotel, a studio in a block down the road or a superior room with all the trimmings. I have had a look around and I cant tell if its specific to this hotel or is a thing thats just done in Italy. Its the Alamanni hotel in Florence.
